Application eligibility criteria

In order to be eligible to apply you must meet the following criteria:

  • Be in your final year of study;
  • Have been granted authorisation to apply (PGR only); or
  • Have had notification of your award.

It is essential in many cases to apply to graduate before you receive formal notification of your results.  However, if you have made an application but do not subsequently receive an award decision you will not be eligible to graduate. 

For current students, If you do not receive notification of your award by 21 October 2022 (23:59 UK time), you will not graduate this Winter. Your application will automatically become void and you will be refunded any monies paid.  This also applies to applications to graduate in absentia.
